Your Plate Mill can greatly benefit from KELK's ACCUPLAN Plate Outline Gauge.
In manually operated plate mills a representation of the plate outline between passes will allow the operator to broadside at the ideal time, and to recognize - and therefore reduce - camber as it develops.
In more and more of the world's most advanced automated plate mills special plan-view plate rolling software is being used, together with powerful hydraulic actuators, to produce plate with straight edges. In this way scrap can be reduced to an absolute minimum. Plan view gauges are essential components of all such systems.
In both manual and automated plate mills the use of a plan view gauge can result in yield improvements worth several million dollars per year!
